SoB: hey
me: hey, how are you?
SoB: fine. what's that noise in the background?
me: oh i'm listening to a (starts muttering) knitting podcast.
SoB: ...
me: let me turn it down. is that better?
SoB: yes. is it like some grandma in minnesota?
me: no, it's a lesbian in wales.
SoB: wow. i couldn't have been more off.



conversation #2 with woman at sushi boat (small, never crowded place very far from downtown with good sushi), making reservation for yaymee's going away party


me: hi i'd like to make a reservation for tomorrow night please.
her: okay, what time?
me: 7:30. it's a large party, for 22 people.
her: [pause] are you sure you're calling the right place? this is the sushi boat on hampden. did you mean to call the sushi den [Ed: hip, expensive place downtown and on old south pearl, usually crowded]?
me: no, i'd like to make a reservation here please.

villanovababy, sushi boat is SO good, and it's far less expensive than sushi den. and the people are always nice! and you never have to wait for a table!
